Intelligentsia Coffee Roasters

3123 North Broadway Ave.
Chicago , IL , United States
(773) 348-8058

Founded on the North Side of Chicago in 1995, low-key Intelligentsia is now one of the most respected coffee roasters in the country. Coffee buyer Geoff Watts—a pioneer in the direct-trade coffee movement—was among the first to seek individual growers, cutting out middlemen. The coffee bar in the Monadnock building is the most attractive, with Art Deco fixtures and original tile floors from the 1920s, but all three locations spotlight the company’s beans in pour-over coffee and espresso drinks, while offering ample seating for big cookies and prepared sandwiches.
